As you like, but is it really worth it?

You don't rate any movies or tag them or maintain a wish list or anything? If you do and just want to remove the file associations, you can use the tool "Manage your video files->Batch delete several file associations".

I don't use the prediction, the rating or the wished functions, i only use the program
to find my files. Starting over isn't a big deal when all drives are connected, it takes 10 minutes.
At this moment the database is 100%, doubles problem solved etc. etc.

thnx again

You're missing something, IMHO...

For me, deciding what to watch (or not to watch) is the central problem that Coollector helps me to solve. I've discovered many movies that I would have missed without Coollector, and I've skipped many movies that would have been a complete waste of my time. The more I get old, the more I realize that my time is previous. I don't want to waste 90 minutes of my life watching a bad movie when instead I could have watched a good one. In the past, I've watched a ton of movies that I don't even remember having watched, what a shame!

I do like many of the movies and series that I skip. :yes:

They're quite enjoyable, they're good for killing time and dozing my brain, but as soon as I realize that a series won't have any influence on my "movie culture", that watching more episodes won't help, I skip it. I'm becoming more and more radical about this.

I hate the idea of "killing time". It's absurd, it's like you're so bored to be alive that you can't wait to be dead.

I skip a lot of decent movies and series because I hardly have enough time to concentrate on the cream of the crop.

There are so many movies and series, it's amazing what's at our disposal. But my free time is limited, I try to use it wisely.

For me watching a movie is to relax.
I'm never bored, i'm bussy all day and every now and then i need to stop being bussy :-)
I hate Telly and stopped watching the brainless programs that are presented there.
So, at such moments i watch a movie from my collection....
Because my hobby is collecting movies, there is always a movie i have not seen and
to tell the truth, it's not always important if its a good movie !
Only series must be good, otherwise you will not look the second episode :-)

When you look at IMDB you see there is a top 250 list
You'll understand not all movies that are made, fit into this list ;-)
For me, watching a "B" movie also can be fun.
